Alex Papadimoulis: Implementing DevOps… and Making it Actually Stick

If you’ve ever been involved in promoting cultural changes within an organization, you may have experienced something even more disheartening than flat-out rejection: a full rollback of cultural change and a decade-long resentment of anyone remotely associated with the implementation. This has happened at countless organizations with agile, with SOA, with virtualization – and it’s starting to happen with DevOps.

How can such as simple idea that’s been so successful at so many companies become such a resounding failure at others? It’s not the organization, and it’s certainly not DevOps. The problem lies in the implementation, and ultimately, with its promoters and champions.

In this talk, Alex will discuss both technical and organizational strategies for a successful long-term DevOps implementation, go over a few big failures at big companies, and cover the common and not-so-common pitfalls when promoting this type of cultural change.

Alex is speaker and writer who's passionate about looking beyond the code to build great software. In addition to founding Inedo – the makers of BuildMaster, the popular continuous delivery platform – Alex also started The Daily WTF, a fun site dedicated to building software the wrong way.
